Owning the Rocket Fausto
Rocket’s Macinatore Fausto is designed with elegance and ease in mind. This stepless grinder is infinitely adjustable, so you can make the tiniest adjustments while dialing in your grind without being limited to a set amount of steps. Adjusting the grind size is easy using the micrometric adjustment knob, which repositions the bottom burr rather than the top. So, when you need to take off the top burr to clean it doesn’t affect your setting; meaning, you can go straight back to grinding shots at the same exact setting as before. If that sounds familiar, you may be thinking of Eureka’s patented micrometric regulation system and burr design, and you’d be right. The Fausto is a Rocket branded Eureka grinder, and features all their innovative elements. It’s also programmable by time, our favourite feature. So you can easily program the Fausto to dispense a single or double shot of espresso on demand, that are adjustable within 1/10th of a second.
Programming the Fausto is easy, and doesn’t require any menu navigation. Instead, you can simply select the shot you’d like to program and press the plus or minus buttons until the screen displays your preferred time. You can also grind manually by pressing the single and double shot buttons simultaneously. Fluffy grinds dispense evenly down the chute into the center of your resting portafilter which is propped up for hands free grinding. To access the large 65mm burrs for cleaning, or just to swap between roasts, the hopper can be stopped and easily removed. The Macinatore Fausto is available in chrome or black, and features Rocket’s signature branding. It not only looks the part standing next to any of the machines in Rocket’s line, its knockout high-performance will keep pace with any of them too.
Programmable Timed Grinding
Grinding times can be programmed for both single and double shots with dedicated buttons for each. You can specify times within 1/10 of a second with counters on the main display for how many times you have prepared a single or a double shot. For one-time dispensing, or if you need just a little extra, press the shot buttons simultaneously to enter manual mode.
Stepless Micrometric Adjustment
Patented by Eureka, the Stepless Micrometric Regulation System controls grind adjustment without the use of steps or stop points, for infinite options. This system is based on lower burr repositioning, meaning you don’t lose your settings when performing maintenance on the grinder. Using the adjustment knob, you refine your grind with your thumb and forefinger.
High Speed Grinding
The Macinatore Fausto’s 500 W motor allows the 65mm tempered steel burrs to spin at speeds up to 1360 RPM, for a quick and easy grind every time. The Fausto easily keeps pace with any of Rocket’s machines, and, with proper maintenance, will deliver consistent, fluffy grounds for years to come.
The bean hopper on the Macinatore Fausto is fitted with a locking mechanism to cut off the flow of beans into the grinder. For increased stability, Rocket has included a silicone seal just above the burrs to help secure the hopper in place. Additionally, a small screw located near the base of the hopper can be used to permanently lock it in place.
